Can we not embed YouTube videos in our solutions? I could of sworn that I had seen it done on someone's solution somewhere, but now I do not remember who it was.

Here is the video I am trying to add to the solution

You must be working towards the badge for opening new threads cause I know you know I've asked for this multiple times!

I thought we all already knew that you could not embed a video in a solution. Kaens has already asked for it and it has not been put into affect yet. That's why the above link is in 'featured requests' because it is not an issue or bug, it simple has not been added to the site. I don't even pay attention to anything and I knew that. So your thread is pointless...
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

Do you think you can be a badass in my leaderboard?? GTN Badass of the Month

You know, if you call something a different name, it doesn't actually make it something different.

Honestly, a new thread is probably more likely to get attention again, than trudging up an old but, but for me personally it's extremely frustrating that I have been suggesting some of these things for months or years with no action. So the fact that someone else now has to ask for the same thing, it's irritating. Not at Marv, but at GTN.

Look at this thread for example, how are we (GTN) going to promote a feature like solutions by creating new badges, only the implementation isn't there yet. It feel premature because you know, or should know, people are going to want to put screen shots, lists, and yes youtube videos in solutions.

I am pretty sure I agreed with one of your threads, that I think formatting, posting, and inserting should be consistent across the site. No reason to make comments on one part of the site use different code than another.

I would also like to embed more than YouTube. It would be nice to embed Twitch or other video services.
I don't know, I can't complain too much because last time I did Fshguy pointed out that something like half of my requests were completed.
